What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease, and his seed shall inherit the earth. Psalm 25:12–13

Isaac Watts (1674–1748)


Where shall the man be found
That fears t’offend his God,
That loves the Gos­pel’s joyful sound,
And trembles at the rod?

The Lord shall make him know
The secrets of His heart,
The wonders of His covenant show,
And all His love impart.

The dealings of His hand
Are truth and mercy still
With such as to His covenant stand,
And love to do His will.

Their souls shall dwell at ease
Before their maker’s face;
Their seed shall taste the promises
In their extensive grace.
